Who is Sara?
I'm a teacher born, raised & educated on the East Coast of Canada. I'm passionate about the sustainability of our coastal ecosystems and have a strong interest in genetics. Before becoming a teacher I worked in a molecular biology research lab and know how to use a pipette! I love travelling and exploring the world, which I use to do a lot more often before my two little girls were born.
Hello! Thanks for checking out Escape Ed Games!
Having taught grades 7 to 12 for 10 years I am familiar with lessons that are both successes and flops. In this blog I plan to provide lesson suggestions for you that are easy to implement and comprehensive, with the occassional classroom management and organization posts.
I know teachers are short on time so my resources are ready to go with simple to follow instructions (for teacher & student), a variety of questions and answer keys. Access to technology is limited in my classroom so the majority of my resources are printable, some requiring internet research that can be done on a smartphone. I also understand that it can be challenging to engage middle and high school students so you'll find lots of labs, board games & escape rooms with accompanying assessments in my resource lists (science + math).
See them and more on my TpT Store!

I am excited to be a current member of the TeacherVision Advisory Board, where my role is to review existing resources and create new material. Check them out, they have some great content that covers all grades & subjects!
One of my favorite types of resources to create are escape rooms! A number of my games have been purchased by Breakout EDU, a site that offers breakout games in a wide range of subject areas and grades. If you haven't already, it's time to try an escape room in your class!
I have also worked with the B.E.E. Kids Box to develop a spy-themed escape room that aligns with VARK Learning Styles. They are a subscription box service that delivers a bi-monthly skills box to your home that encourages exploration.
